Referees for Lions v All Blacks second test, RWC Qualifiers & Super Rugby

Referee Jérôme Garcès who oversees the second All Blacks v Lions match

After Jaco Peyper’s turn last week, and Romain Poite of France in the midweek match on Tuesday, fellow Frenchman  Jérôme Garcès assumes the lead role for Saturday’s All Blacks test against the Lions.  After a few weeks break during the international touring window, the South African pools in the Super Rugby season resume, with Gus Garner, Jamie Nutbrown, Egon Seconds and Jaco van Heerden on duty.

Italy’s Marius Mitrea and Ireland’s Andrew Brace will oversee Rugby World Cup qualifiers in Tonga and the USA respectively.  Brace will be hoping the two sides generate a result after the first leg ended 28 each.
